Art Journal Page – “Happiness”

Art Journal happiness

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn.  It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” (Denis Waitley)

The background of this page was made using two different colours of Inka Gold (a paste paint with a metallic sheen).  I applied the green with a baby wipe, and the purple with a damp sponge tapped through a stencil.

Because the background seemed dark, I wanted to add white to the foreground.  I scraped gesso onto the page using the edge of a credit card, and then applied some drywall mesh brushed with purple Perfect Pearls.

This was one of five inspiration pages for a class I taught at Scrap Arts called “Art Journaling with Inka Gold” in September, 2013.  We’ll be offering this class again on January 9, 2014.  To sign up, phone the store at 604-980-8811.
